What Is Zero Waste?

The simple answer: We aim to send nothing to a landfill. We reduce what we need, reuse as much as we can, send little to be recycled, and compost what we cannot.

The less simple answer: It's about redefining the system. We currently live in a linear economy where we take resources from the earth and then dump them in landfill.

The goal of zero waste is to move to a circular economy which mimics nature. Instead of discarding resources, we create a system where all resources can be resumed fully back into the system.
